UPDATE: We're always on the prowl for chic new skirts, so we dug up some classic pieces. This story was originally published on June 22.
Look, it's not that we dislike dressing for our 9-to-5 or anything, it's just that sometimes it can be a little dull pulling on the same ol' blouse and pair of trousers every day. "Business casual" can quickly add up to "fashion boredom," and we find ourselves longing for the freedom of weekend dressing.
But, now that it's summer, we say it's time to toss aside those pants, and bare a little leg with a sassy-but-appropriate skirt. We're not talking minis here — there are tons of options in, shall we say, more demure lengths, that still keep the style factor on high. We've done the (leg) work for you, and scoured the racks for the most fashionable iterations that'll still keep you looking super profesh.
And the best part? Each and every one of the skirts can take you from happy hour to date night—and beyond. Go more formal with a solid pencil skirt, or have a little fun with an ikat print or a flirty maxi, depending on what your office will allow. But, no matter which way you go, prepare to start turning heads at the office — for more than just your stellar work ethic.
